COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If Green Flash were founded in historical Belgium, Rayon Vert would have been our flagship brew. A bold layering of hops finds balance from traditional malts. Bottle conditioning with fresh ale yeast and Brettanomyces finishes the beer, adding a delightful effervescence, dryness and continuously evolving character. Rayon Vert is Green Flash.

Cloudy amber, huge 4+ fingers of rocky white head after the slowest pour possible, sticking around for a good while. This is the most carbonated beer I’ve seen, quite impressive. Sweet and sour aroma, yeast, brett, apple skin, white grapes, some tannin, lemon, a little funk.Taste is green apple, white wine, honeydew melon, funky belgian yeast, finishing very dry. Awesome stuff, definitely a lot like Orval, but I might actually like this more.

mgajdaczewa (481) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 9, 2014
W aromacie nuty owocowe głównie brzoskwinia, ale także cięższe nuty takie jak oliwka, szynka parmeńska. Po ogrzaniu pojawiają się nuty świeższe, przywołujące na myśl białe wino. W smaku gładkie, ułożone, nuty chlebowe, słodsze owocowe nuty drożdżowe charakterystyczne dla stylu, wyraźnie zaznaczona goryczka. Bardzo pijalne i smaczne piwo.

If there ever was an Orval clone, this is the closest I’ve seen. Aroma is delightful. Aromatic floral brett tartness. I could smell this all day. Flavor is the combined brett with hops. Nice beer for sure. One I’d purchase again. Got this one across the border in Wisconsin.

BOSSbrewer (1581) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Almost a gusher. Eventually just had an enormous head. Was a hazy golden amber after a few minutes. Aroma is extremely yeasty and bready. Slightly spicy. Flavor follows with a nice bitter edge. Almost a hint of sourness but not off putting. Finishes dry. Nice beer.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
Gusher, but I managed to contain it. Vast coarseish deep offwhite head. Clear amber body, although at first it’s nearly all head. Earthy barnyard and cow dung aroma with mealy notes. Dry-sweet-acidic resiny tropical fruit and barnyard taste with salty wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry-bitter resiny wooden cow dung aftertaste with citric salty notes. A bit harsh and sharp, but has interesting aspects, too. (0.355l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

Marheb (1997) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Une offrande explosive embouteillée le 24 août 2012. Effervescence surmenée au départ mais dès qu’elle se calme, les saveurs se placent. Des relents de conifères, du brett savonneux et une finale de verdure, buvabilité toxique.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear light amber with a huge lasting straw-coloured head. Lovely aroma - fruity and floral, fairly strong alcohol - simple, quite bitter too. Taste follows but with a real funky "Orval" bite to it - average body, very airy, astringent, spicy, dry, quick-finishing with a slightly tart fruit aftertaste ... surprised how much I like it.

Bottle in Iowa. Way to much funk, made ir awful for me. Brett or something overwhelmed me

Shark_Pants (162) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2013
Massive carbonation requiring a slow pour and still resulting in a sizable head. Aroma musty hay & funk from the Brett & citrus from the hops. Taste is funk, lemon zest, coriander, with some good body from the malt & a light sourness in the finish. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into my Funkwerks tulip glass. Orange and cloudy with a big, lasting white head. Aroma is tart, funky, fruity, bretty and lightly sour, quite enticing. Similar flavor with an earthy bitterness and a dry feel. Refreshing and tasty as fuck. Update: Other bottles of this haven’t been quite 4.0, but close. Still, top notch and fantastic in some bottles/batches.
